BeerSauce Shop: Beer and BBQ Bliss in Bradenton

Gary King is a certified pitmaster hailing from St. Louis. When he decided to move to a warmer climate, he knew he had to bring a taste of home with him.

The Bradenton BeerSauce Shop is the sixth location of the franchise and the first in Florida. It features an ever-rotating selection of over 500 craft beers, more than 200 varieties of BBQ sauces, rubs, and hot sauces, 22 draught beer taps, and a St. Louis-Style BBQ menu.

Tasty Selections

When you’re in the mood for fresh and flavorful BBQ dishes, look no further than BeerSauce Shop, where they smoke their meats on-site daily. 

Make sure you come hungry, so you can start your meal with 12 warm BeerSauce pretzel bites served with queso or some signature Tennesse BBQ Nachos, made with your choice of hand-pulled pork or chicken atop a mountain of nachos with campfire chili, queso, sweet slaw, jalapenos, and diced onion.

After that, try the smoked pulled chicken or pork sandwiches, both served with lettuce and sliced onion on a crip brioche bun and your choice of side (campfire chili, cole slaw, baked beans, or mac & cheese).

Their signature sandwich is the BeerSauce Cuban. A smoky twist on a Florida staple, the in-house smoked pork pairs perfectly with ham, your choice of melty provolone or swiss, all gracing a toasty hoagie bun.

No Miller Lite Here

For Gary, it’s almost a point of pride not having any mainstream beer brands in the store. Currently, Beer Sauce Shop boasts over 500 craft bottled and canned beer, many from local Florida breweries. 

That’s not including the 22 draught taps at the bar. These selections change regularly, so it’s unlikely you’ll see the same set of beers twice. From crisp ciders to stiff stouts, beer lovers are sure to find a new favorite amongst the bunch. Looking for an alcohol-free option? BeerSauce Shop also offers an interesting selection of craft sodas by the bottle.

Sauces, Rubs, and More

The “sauce” part of BeerSauce Shop is equally exciting. The retail store carries a huge selection of sauces and rubs ranging from sweet to spicy. You’ll find a whole wall of options, along with tiny spoons so you can taste them all before making your decision. Then, add the sauce of your choice to your meal or pick a bottle (or 10!) to take home with you.

Trust us, there are so many delicious options, you’re sure to find a bunch you’ll want to enjoy again and again. Luckily for every 3 you choose, you’ll get a 4th free.
